“Vegetarians should not bother with this one.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

On December 1 my wife and I ordered the Tofu Mixed Vegetable. There was no tofu, so they substituted mushrooms. What we got was an unbelievably small serving of 95 percent shredded boiled cabbage with one or two tiny broccoli pieces and a few thin carrot slices--no other vegetables except the added mushrooms, all this non-appetizing pitifully small mix over a large bed of white rice. This was the second chance we gave Sarku Japan after writing the company about the meager vegetable meal. The company did respond and offered to pay for my next meal, which I declined. Three time we would be fools. So we will not return. This review does not reflect on the meat menu.
